Hi so I searched through the forum but couldn't find any answers to my problem. I just recently bought an aftermarket touch screen navigation system for my 2012 cruze and I'm not sure if we're installing it correctly but everything works except for the sound. Here's the link to the kit I bought. Type in www before the link I can't post it yet.

Any help would be appreciated.

A pioneer system everything runs off the amplifier in the trunk. There is no way that I'm aware of to communicate with the amp besides with the stock radio. That is why you have no sound. Also, many computer functions run through the stock radio. They are basically part of the cars computer. I'd put your stock radio back in if I were in your situation.

True. It may be easier to bypass the amp. But if you want to keep it, it shouldn't be too hard. There's one line that causes the amp to turn on and another that mutes/unmutes it.

The amp turn on is probably the least of the worries, unit most likely does have a remote turn on, the real problem is going to be getting all the other modules in the car to exist with this unit, unless they cloned a stock radio there is going to be a whole bunch of stuff that does not work, on-star voice, steering wheel controls, fan display--to mention a few, theft deterrent ain't going to be happy either and could lock out start etc. in short you will lose a lot of functionality at least and at worst BCM could have a meltdown and not start the car if this thing even touches the low speed LAN, which the original radio is connected to, they say "sorry no instructions" which translated means if you cannot make it cooperate with the car your SOL---I'd try and get my money back, I think aliexpress has a buyer protection policy now

Did that get your audio playing and all the other things like steering controls?

This was a problem with my 2012 back around April 2012 when I had a local shop install an aftermarket GPS.

They needed to keep the oem factory as part of the system and buried it within the dashboard behind the passenger side left foot area. I have full steering wheels controls for the system and it works fine.

Yeah how would I bypass the amp? So far the aftermarket radio still retains all the features of steering wheel and all but will it still after bypassing the amp? And are the harnesses you mentioned required for that?

Andy...what exactly are you trying to accomplish...install an aftermarket head unit and keep oem functions or install an aftermarket unit and upgrade to better sound?

Yeah I'm trying to get the aftermarket head unit working but I hear you need the Axxess GMOS-044 Wiring Interface to integrate with the aftermarket unit. I kinda have a general idea of what wires you would need to connect but has anybody ever installed a GMOS-044 in their vehicle?

Did you get this working. Currently looking at the android 6.0 units but the sellers all say they dont work with the pioneer system like you discovered. Would love to see this work so i can update my 2011 cruze LTZ with a newer android based console. was looking at CarPlay/andriod auto units but those are all so locked down that a simple android tablet would be better for what I want.
This one retains heating and cooling:

Waiting to hear back from this one if it retains the heating and cooling:

I have searched and searched but information on the pioneer speakers is very limited. i have a wiring diagram i found here on the forum if you need it, but it does not seem to help me figure this out.

I've been slowly working on it. I purchased the GMOS-044 interface and tapped it into the back of the aftermarket radio. I plugged it into the stock harness and this time the unit turned on with sound and all for a moment but then it cut off. The only thing is the ground wire with the ring terminal isn't secure and I can't find a good ground connection other than on the aftermarket radio. Not sure what to do.

I would add an extension to the wire and use a self tapping screw into sheet metal to ground it. I would not mess with any factory grounds unless you are prepared to re-terminate them if they happen to be crusty looking.
